    It will be interesting to see what happens if other companies will operate along the route and whether they will be able to use the name Hurtigruten.
    Exciting to see what will happen and if this will end up in court.

      According to an article in Hegnar.no, Hurtigruten will purchase "Richard With" and "Nordlys"
      They collected NOK 400 million for the purchase and refurbishment of the ships.

        What is the significance of this purchase?

        Do I understand correctly that it is possibly a move designed to prevent these ships falling into the hands of competitors who might bid for some future coastal express "Hurtigruten" contract?

        Who owns these ships today?

        I think Clipper might have a good point in regards to future contract for these ships.

            Read about what's inside ombugge's link above in our local newspaper here in Kristiansund today, and when MS Roald Amundsen start the 14-days sailing (cruise) from Hamburg up along the Norwegian coast and return to Hamburg, day 12 is already preplanned to be a stop in Kristiansund

                  Remind me of a cattle transporter. Why change something that works? Why must we change everything? Is this a sign, a bad sign, of the time we live in, where money and money only talk???

                    Oh well.... what can I say, other than hoping the rendering is not in any way close to the final product.

                    That just looks too.... bulky.

                    I feel this is the time which we will see the end of the historical Hurtigrute as we know so well. What continues from now will be... ehhh... different.

                      Doesn't look like the Beautiful Ship to woo the tourists on the Beautiful Voyage.
                      And, even more importantly for the Norwegians, where is the cargo and the cars?

                        I suppose this might be an early-work plan for the new ship, omitting crucial details such as the port side cargo hatch and gangway arrangement.

                        I would prefer something more modern, and sleeker looking. Ship design has come a lot further than this I feel.
